Ask a question about this product

The whiteness of crystallized natron (a sodium carbonate) on the black volcanic shore of Lake Logipi contrasts with the blue-green algae that proliferates in the alkaline, brackish water. Seen from the sky, this part of the shore suggests the shape of a giant oyster. The tiny pearl dots that surround it are flamingos, congregating where the fresh water re-emerges. These birds seek nourishment in shallow lake waters rich in algae and small crustaceans, which give flamingos their characteristic color. Immense colonies of flamingos travel from lake to lake in the Rift Valley, guided by annual rain patterns that modify the concentration of soda and thus affect food supply. The Rift Valley is now home to almost 3 million greater flamingos, more than half of their entire world population.
